The Thick of It cast & creators look back at the sitcom

The comedy that gave us Malcolm Tucker was funny because it was true, but for politicians it was harrowing, says Ed Cumming. He speaks to Armando Iannucci, Peter Capaldi, Rebecca Front, Chris Addison and others about marzipan dildos, loudmouth spads, and ministers with no status or power as the show turns 15-years-old.

Breeders review

The filth and the fury of modern parenting.

Breeders episodes 1 and 2 review

Simon Blackwell and Chris Addison's funny, frank new parenting comedy is taboo-breaking and part of a growing trend.

Breeders, review

Martin Freeman's sweary parenting comedy may be sharp, but it's unlikeable and cruel.

Breeders review - I'm a parent ... get me out of here!

Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard star as a stressed out, permanently disappointed couple in a new comedy that ought to come complete with tranquillisers and birth control.

Breeders, review

There's a top notch team of writers behind these middle-class Macbeths, but the humour never quite rings true.

Breeders review

Martin Freeman is the perennially good-natured screen everyman. But in the new Sky comedy Breeders, which he co-created, his character Paul is forced to concede: "I'm not a nice man."
